My parents and husband and I stayed here on the KGB deal as a chance to try something different. We don't usually venture into Kemptown when in Brighton so it was a chance to explore another area and The Alvia was the perfect base to enable us to do this. A short stroll from a variety of fab pubs and restaurants (we particularly enjoyed the nearby Black Dove for cocktails and Sopar for fantastic Thai food), and a pleasant 10 minute walk into central Brighton, it made a lovely change from our usual central seafront haunts. Our room was spacious, clean and had everything we needed including hairdryer and tea/coffee facilities. We needed to use an ironing board during our stay and the kind owner set it up for us in the dining room to use as and when we needed it.
Breakfast was faultless- a lovely selection of cereals, fruit and yogurts and as much toast as you liked...I went for the full English both mornings as it was so tasty. Not many places get the bacon right, but here it's absolutely delicious.
All in all we had a fantastic weekend and wouldn't hesitate to recommend The Alvia to anybody wanting a calm and relaxing haven to return to after hitting the many shops/pubs/clubs of thriving Brighton!
